Connery says no to Indiana Jones sequel
SEAN Connery has ruled out starring in the next Indiana Jones, saying retirement is too much fun.
The Edinburgh-born screen legend played Indy's father in 1989's Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, the third instalment of the franchise directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by George Lucas.
"I get asked the question so often, I thought it best to make an announcement," Connery, 76, said in a statement on Lucasfilm's Indiana Jones website.
"I thought long and hard about it, and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement it would have been an Indiana Jones film.
"I love working with Steven and George, and it goes without saying that it is an honour to have Harrison as my son," he said.
"But in the end, retirement is just too damned much fun."
The fourth Indiana Jones film, not yet titled, is again directed by Spielberg and produced by Lucas. Shooting begins this month, and the movie is due out in the US in May next year.
